"So last week I mentioned getting a little excited. After a few phenomenal days at Squaw (yeah phenomenal, they seriously were) pounding out bell to bell laps on Sibo, cleaning up scraps around Alpine, another day casually crushing out laps on KT and a little bit of backcountry action for myself, I decided to take a rest day instead of going out and filming shenanigans with WeinerOne. Apparently I hadn't gotten it all out because it took pretty much zero convincing to get me fired up on getting some shots. I'd been looking at Adrenaline chute, which looked filled in and un-hit so I figured why not. I Killed time waiting to meet up with Salm by cruising Headwall and jibbing the wind-fence at the top. Then is was time to drop into the line. It looked like someone had made some side-slip/hop-turns down the top of the chute and then hiked back out because the chute was haggard despite the landing being fresh. So when all was set, I dropped in, tried to get some snow moving, but got all hung up in the beat-up mank. I flailed my way into the take-off but still managed to stomp the piss out of the air. NBD. Then we went to go jib the fence some more and I took myself off of skis again by falling on my face with an over-aggressive tap. Pretty weak."

Just in case you thought it didn't look that rowdy from the other angles
